The number of destroyed churches and medieval monasteries is around 150 -90% of all remaining churches in Kosovo. Less than 10 are intact because they are guarded 24/7 with tanks and barbed wire and checkpoints manned by Italians, not Germans, Brits or Americans. It is noteworthy that destroyed churches survived 400 years of Ottoman occupation and Hitler but could not survive 8 years of U.S.-led occupation.
The number of 600 destroyed churches is characteristic of another area of Muslim invasion - Northern Cyprus. Again, churches survived Ottomans but could not survive NATO Turkey.
